    Hi mm,

    I observed that when I manually set the zoom mode (via right click + change aspect ratio - aside, I've always thought "change aspect ratio" to be an "interesting" description) that the CPU drops down to "normal" levels. As if that action disables VMS. That's cool. I just wondered if there were any way to re-enable it without stopping and restarting the movie.
    When it detects 'user' aspect ratio changes, it disables the black-bar detection until it detects another stream AR change (or a stop/start/channel change) i.e. it assumes the user knows best :) . Toggling the BB detect mode (i.e. hit F4) will enable BB detection again.

    CPU (first gen Core 2 e6600 2.4 GHz) runs at < 10% CPU without the plugin enabled; that jumps to between 15 and 30% with the plugin enabled. I guess this is normal, but having never used VMS or IFC I'm not really sure.
    The CPU usage sounds about normal - it grabs a frame every second and processes it for black bar detection. If you don't want the BB detection just disable it in each 'rule' or globally. In my systems it's actually the frame grabbing that takes the time, not the processing - maybe VMR9 isn't as efficient ?

    Thanks for the XP testing :)

    (PS - way off topic, but any more thoughts on the TsWriter/EPG hang problem ?)

    Fourth version (v4) uploaded - This is a small rework of the user interface.

    As requested - any 'rule' can now be enabled/disabled using the tick boxes in the main window, the window is now horizontally re-sizeable, and the 'Esc' key can be used as a 'Cancel' button.

    Thanks, I've tried v4 and it works just as you say.

    I have one more request. Can we please switch the positions of the OK and Cancel buttons? I think all (?) other windows in MediaPortal have OK to the left and Cancel to the right. In VMS i sometimes click OK when I mean to cancel :ROFLMAO: Same thing in the RuleDetailWindow.

    Not sure whether to rate your post "funny" or "agree" as I think both are equally relevant! :ROFLMAO:
    Owlsroost, if you need the assistance of somebody with a full VS I'd be happy to do it.

    I confess I haven't looked at it for some time. Too many things on the go. :(
    What I'm miffed about with that issue is the problems people still have with that specific transponder, and yet I can load up their dump files and run them in a BDA driver simulator without any problems. In other words, I'm not clear whether the remaining issue is a parsing issue or a threading and filter control issue. If it is a parsing issue then maybe the dump files I have just don't trigger it; if it is a threading issue, maybe I'm not testing correctly. What I wanted to do next was create a wrapper for our EPG code. The idea would be to feed in dump files and confirm that parsing works correctly. However, like I say I've been distracted by other things at present...

    Hello,

    I have a Problem with (recorded) 4:3 inside 16:9 HD : I expected it would do a nonlinearstretch or zomm 14:9, but nothing happens at all!

    Attached a sample Picture and my current config.

    Default I tested, too. But same result!

    Any Ideas what I have to change (without affercting other rules...)?

    Nothing obviously wrong - you'll need to enable 'verbose logging' and post the new log.

    The default settings won't work for this movie because they disable BB detection for HD.

    Also your BB detect level thresholds are quite low (11) - try raising them a bit and see if it works better.
